The Ministry of Plenty

Life Rewired Hub

Event Information
Ministry of plenty

The Orwell Foundation's Ministry of Plenty will take over the Life Rewired Hub to host a weekend of events and new commissions, from imaginative fiction on the future of work to virtual reality film.

In George Orwell’s classic dystopian novel 1984, the Ministry of Plenty maintains a state of perpetual poverty, scarcity and food shortages, while convincing the populace that they are living in a state of unprecedented prosperity. What influence does the scale and extent of technological change have on the way society is organised today?

Inspired by Orwell’s classic novel, this weekend of events, installations and new commissions brings together writers, artists and innovators with the public to explore the relationship between technology and society, politics and poverty in the shadow of 1984 and - perhaps - begin to imagine a different kind of future.
